Methanol is an innovative and promising alternative fuel for the shipping industry. On June 1, 2016, the Taranaki Sun made its first port of call on its maiden voyage at New Plymouth, New Zealand. The vessel, one of the world’s first ocean-going vessels capable of running on methanol, was named by one of Methanex’s New Zealand-based employees after nearby Mount Taranaki.
